Perennial Planting Services

Professional perennial planting services from Salinas Landscaping

Perennials are very hardy plants that by definition live more than two years. Unlike annuals or biennials, perennials come back after every winter because of their rootstock. There are trees and shrubs classified as perennials but in most instances, when someone says perennial, they are referring to small flowering plants. Depending on the region you live in, not all perennial plants can survive the winter. Salinas Landscaping can help you pick the ones that can so you can enjoy them year after year.

Caring for Perennials

Once your perennials are planted, Salinas Landscaping can tend to all the care for your perennials for you on our regular in-season visits. We can also teach you how to care for your perennials yourself, even help improve them for the next year.

The most common care methods for perennials are:

  • Adding mulch around them for added moisture
  • Watering regularly
  • Fertilizing every 6 weeks through the spring and summer
  • Staking to support tall perennials
  • Pinching branch perennials for growth pattern control
  • Thinning perennials for better air circulation
  • Pruning before flowering
  • Disbudding for cut flower arrangements
  • Deadheading perennials to remove unrequired seed production energy
  • Deadleafing perennials to allow room for new foliage
  • Fall care involves cutting back to prevent freezing
  • Winter mulching for insulation
  • Division splits the perennials to add years of growth to older perennials

Edible Perennials

For a more useful planting, edible perennials are becoming more and more popular for their smells, for eating, for medicinal applications or homeopathic remedies, and especially for their money saving ability. Edible perennials can save you hundreds of dollars a year on fresh herbs, even fruits and vegetables are perennials in the right climates. Not only can edible perennials save you money, they can make you money at farmers markets and with friends and neighbors. More and more, people are becoming aware of what is being used in their food and cooking supplies so we look for better, fresh alternatives to keep everyone healthy.
